Having problems with your Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum ?

Brushes are not spinning. think the belt is off or broken. how do i access the belt?


Answers :

There is no belt in this machine. The brushes are turning by an air driven turbine. The turbine has a pivot bushing made of steel inside of it that gets rusty because of the water that is running through it. The turbine will have to be replaced and they are expensive. Unfortunately, replacing the turbine and not a lasting solution. It will do it again and again. It is designed poorly.
Well first u have to disassemble the top of the steamvac 5 brush agitator, then remove the turbine and open it up to remove the two teeth wheels. Then turn over to open up the turbine part, u will see underneth the steel turbine. Use a hammer and screw driver to hit the steal piece out, then grease it and the inside where it goes. Then slide it thru a couple of time and hammer it back the way it was, then reassemble everthing. (To open means to remove screws then open.)

Miele White Star SEB 204, powerhead stopped spinning. brushes are clear of debris, belt (#3854940) is not broken. Could belt be stretched so that brush head does not spin?


Yes, most likely the belt has stretch. Flat belts do this after a short time and need to be replaced when problems start with the brush roll not wanting to turn. Also check the brush roll, make sure that the ends turn freely, if not, then replace i ... Miele Vacuums

Hoover Mach 6 U5198-900 vacuum roller brush won't turn. I had opened the bottom to clean hair off the roller. the belts are not broken. When I closed it and turned it on, now the roller brush won't turn. I can push and turn it by hand, but not easily. Then I noticed the brush on/off switch is turned off, but when I step on it, it won't turn on. I was thinking I let something get out of place when I opened the bottom, but can't see what.

Try a new belt. The ends of the brushroller are different sizes, so you can't put it in backwards. There are numbers and notches on the ends of the brushroll. These notches/numbers need to match on both sides when installing it. (probably need b ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Hoover WindTunnel S3765. The motor spins and the belt turns when I turn the brushes on, and the brushes will spin. The problem is that when I do this on carpet, the brushes stop spinning. As soon as I pull the "head" off the carpet, the brushes spin again. It's almost as if the vacuum suction is too great. I took the head apart and watched the motor turn the metal spindle that the belt rests on, and the belt turns as well.
